Please, please do not underestimate tundra, desert, cliffs, jungles etc.!
Where would _Pinguicula algida/variegata_ be without the tundras? The
(semi-)arid regions of Australia are important for many species of
_Drosera_, the coastal cliffs of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco are the only
native home of _Drosophyllum_ I do know about, etc. etc.

Our aim should be to preserve as many *different* natural habitats as
possible. Habitat destruction is not limited to small islands on this
planet, it is an almost global problem, not only for cp.

Kind regards
